Michael Jordan, Jordan Brand opened third application cycle for BCC Community Grant program

Michael Jordan and Jordan Brand have opened the third application cycle for the BCC Community Grant program.

The BCC Community Grant program invests in and supports organizations and individuals dedicated to ensuring racial equality, social justice, and greater access to education and opportunity. Each grantee organization that is part of Black Community Commitment (BCC) will be selected based on their alignment with one of these four key pillars:

Economic Justice: Build generational wealth in Black communities through financial literacy, access to capital, and strengthening Black entrepreneurial success.

Education: Help schools adapt curriculum and diversify staff to equip better and support the needs of BIPOC students. Engage educational reform efforts that prevent discrimination.

Narrative Change: Increase awareness of the role race plays in our history to drive a deeper understanding of the consequences of racism in our everyday lives.

Social Justice: Build social and political capital within the Black community by investing in and advocating for policy reform.

To be eligible, applicants must be a U.S.-based non-profit organization with 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status established in 2019 or prior and have an annual operating budget between $100,000 to $3 million. Applications from organizations that are U.S.-based and manage programs internationally are also invited to apply.

For complete program guidelines and application instructions, see the Jordan Brand website.

Deadline: November 29, 2022
